Speaking with Joe Jonas and hearing that he enjoys having his level of fame to speak about important causes was a wonderful thing to hear.
Here is a taste from my interview with the musician about how he uses his celebrity:
Jonas says he is grateful for his opportunity to act as a mentor for programs like Acuvue’s 1-Day Contest and also participates in charitable efforts like the Special Olympics through his charity with his brothers called Change For Children.
“I have a platform where I’m able to talk about things that I’m passionate about,” the 22-year-old said. “Even if you say that you don’t want to be an influence, it’s kind of how it is when you’re put in this position. I’m very pleased that I’m able to speak about things openly like the Special Olympics and those who are affected by intellectual disabilities to raise money and awareness for their causes.”
